PTI July 2014 Blog Hop #1

July Blog Hop Inspiration



The inspiration photo above left us wide open for ideas. For my first card, I focussed on the gingham envelope, the doily and the red flowers, and came up with this. I used "Sweet Life" and "Mega Gracious Vases". For the background, I used 3 different colours of Distress Inks, swiped across white cardstock, with a few water droplets for some texture. I liked how the background turned out!
Thanks for looking and have a great day! Comments are always welcome.

  4. You've created a perfectly composed still life painting. That background is fab and I thought you had added rainstones, that's how much dimension your water droplets have.
